Visible capillaries on the face and body are a very common aesthetic problem, affecting a significant number of women of all ages, but also occurring in men. The permanent redness of the face, which intensifies over time and eventually transforms in noticeably dilated capillaries, is called couperose or rosacea. It is a chronic condition, which means it cannot be permanently cured. However, modern technology brings us procedures that can help visually alleviate these aesthetic problems! The recommended treatment that gives the best results is laser capillary removal.
The laser can treat capillaries and veins up to 2 mm in diameter, which encompasses the most common aesthetic problems in patients: nets of red, blue and purple capillaries, dark blue or light blue veins.
How does laser therapy work? The laser light penetrates the skin and is absorbed by the hemoglobin in the blood vessel, the light turns into heat, and the blood vessel closes and disappears.
The treatment is quick and painless.
During the free consultation appointment, our specialist physicians will examine and analyze your skin and suggest a treatment and therapy plan, accordingly.
The number of treatments required to achieve the desired final effect depends on the type and number of vascular changes.
Facial redness and capillaries’ braking is caused by external and genetic factors, and it is more frequent in people with thinner and lighter skin.
The skin should not be tanned. You need to avoid sun exposure and using tanning beds for two weeks before the treatment. Be sure to tell your doctor about any medications you are taking before laser capillary removal.
The procedure doesn’t require anesthesia. You will, however, feel a mild tingling sensation. The duration of an individual intervention depends on the size of the region being treated.
After the treatment, the area exposed to the laser will be slightly red and inflamed. In most patients, the redness and inflammation disappear within 24-48 hours.
During the recovery period, at least two weeks after the treatment, direct sun exposure and the use of tanning beds should be avoided.
